  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Rather weaker Highland Park ex-bourbon cask bottling. Easy drinking, but not very complex.

      Takes some time to develop fully. Shortbread biscuits, floral herbs, citrus. Wild honey and a pinch of sea salt.

      After I had it on the palate, I also notice a slight note of peat smoke.

      Lemon, cloudy pear juice, wild herbs, subtle peat smoke. Black pepper at the end.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Floral, sweet wild honey, pear peels and charred ash. Medium length.

    Not quite as much smoke but an absolute fruit bomb! Was very surprised!
